CT scan revealed 3 non displaced fractures on my left orbit. One spicule (sp?) floating in the orbit. Doc says it will heal normally with no intervention. Thing is, my face is still numb from roughly the lower eyelid down to my upper left lip. This is day 3. My eye has full movment and works fine. I'm starting to feel "itches" in he numb areas on occasion, in one spot on my cheek in particular.
is all this normal, or am I going to have numb face FOREVER..hehe
I'm assuming that since I have non displaced fractures nothing moved in which case nothing could have moved a nerve and or pinched it. Which tells me that it's just a bruised nerve and/or swelling around the nerve that is cutting it off. I hope? I'm just scared dudes...I fell from like 9 feet up.
